So, what’s the point in all these new extensions? BMI calculator, unit conversions, rgb to hex, tweet, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, if all of that is doable with procedures in the blockly interface?

These semi useless extensions are actually helping the person that makes that extension, and nobody else, really. In fact I think it’s harming the real cause of App Inventor/Thunkable. And this is why I think that:

If I’m not mistaken the whole point of App Inventor/Thunkable is to TEACH coding.
So how do I learn THE BASICS of coding if all I have to do to convert km to miles is slap a block that says CONVERT KM xxxx to MILES? Isn’t that just like Googling it? Or how do I learn how the activity starter works if all I have to do is put a block that says TWEET xxxxx.

The beauty of the Blockly interface is actually learning the basic steps of coding which involves [gasp!] PLACING BLOCKS! If you don’t even have to do that now, what’s the point in the whole thing?

It would be better to have extensions that actually add functionality to App Inventor/Thunkable that is not possible to have with simple use of blocks. Good examples are In App Purchases, Floating buttons, SQLite, email, image editing, etc.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s great of you guys learning how to do extensions, and it will save me a good couple of minutes to use your extensions instead of placing all the blocks and doing the actual coding of the procedure. But is it really helping on the educational side? Are we afraid of placing blocks now?

Hi folks,

Quick update on this project. In the month or so since we launched we’ve reviewed 18 extensions, with helpful documentation and troubleshooting for using extensions.

We’ve also purchased a new domain name, so you can find us a bit easier now at http://extensiondirectory.com/

Which extension would you like us to add to the directory next?

  • WebViewer Dialog Extension
  • Image Cropping Extension
  • Gesture Handler Extension
  • ActionBar Extension

Sounds like a good idea - do extensions have logos?
